    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vistaprint in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was told there would be 2 rounds of phone interviews then a physical interview. I had the first one and never heard back even though the recruiter mentioned they'd get back to me in a week...it's been 3. Ignoring emails is not professional!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Waltham, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The company was recruiting on my university campus and I originally had an hour long interview that consisted of a business case and a discussion of my background, interest in the company, and any questions that I had. I was then invited to a hiring day at the office with about 20 other people also interviewing for marketing specialist positions. The day was really long, but provided a great opportunity to learn about the company culture. The interview day consisted of group activities, a panel of recent hires, and 3 one hour-long interviews. Two of the interviews were case based interviews and were related to relevant problems the company could be facing. The last interview was behavioral. Everyone from HR and all the interviewers were friendly, welcoming, and efficient communicators

    Interview

    Position sounded good. The ball was in my field to follow up which was fine - but irritating. Afte they finally brought me in for a 4 hour interview, no one followed up. Not a call, not an email, and definitely no response to my inquires. Rude!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Waltham, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One of the most pleasant and efficient hiring processes I had a chance to go through.
    Very close to what Google, and other cutting edge tech companies do.
    There was a phone screen with HR, a code challenge online, and a whole day of in-person interviews. Everyone was very professional and great to talk to. Besides answering the questions there was a lot of opportunities to learn about the company, what they do, their structure and culture.
    Free lunch included.

    Interview

    The first round is talking with recruiter of Vistaprint. It took me 30 mins. And recruiter is super nice. And second day, I got the invite to have a phone call with this position's manager. And it was confirmed for 1 hour phone scree. But she just talked with me around 15 mins with asking normal questions and no behavioral questions. And want me to ask several questions. I have no idea why it takes only 15 minutes and no other talking. And now I am shocked while waiting for rejection letter.

    DevOps Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took roughly 3 hours of my time. The first part was a manufacturing/logical problem that they claimed has occurred at one point. The other parts were with members of the team and a the manager

    What really was aggravating was that the Talent Acquisition manager has asked to call me as if he was going to shoot an offer only to tell me I didn't get the job. This could have been easily emailed to me instead of building up any hope of me getting the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out and set up an interview. There was a online coding test and then I came in for a face to face. The first interviewer was extremely rude, very hostile and would not engage. It was as if I was responding to a wall, he would ask a question and then just look down. It was very clear for some reason he did not like me from the start. Somewhere in the middle of my sentence explaining an approach to solve a problem, he said that is just idiotic and does not make any sense. The whole interview was so stressful, soon as we were done, I just walked out of the interview.

    Product Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was the absolute longest interview process I have ever been in. The first phone interview was in the beginning of October 2016. I had 3 different phone interviews between October 2016 and December 2016. The communication during this time period was extremely lacking. They would say they would contact me the next week. 3 weeks later, after a couple emails from me, I would finally get a response to the last email I had sent. Final phone interview was mid December 2016. They said I would hear back by the end of December. By the second week of January, I emailed them looking for a response. I tried to give them the benefit because of the holiday. No response. Emailed again end of January. Second week of February finally got an email back asking me to come into the office for an interview and looking for my availability for the next week. My week was already scheduled for my current job and I live in a different state. Explained this and gave other specific dates and times I was available and explained these were the only dates I had available in the coming couple of weeks. They emailed me back trying to schedule me on any day I did not state availability on. They kept trying to get me to come in at 8:00 am on a Wednesday. I explained again that unfortunately that would not work for me as I would be coming in from out of State and did not have that date available. They continued to push for every day I did not state I had available. I finally got frustrated and had enough of the obvious lack of reading my emails and let them know I would not be moving forward with their company. I have never seen a company less organized with their recruiting and hiring process before. I really hope no one else experiences this.
